Four 40 Records honcho Hybrid Theory continues his experiments in bass heavy house, combining a range of influences to bring forth exciting and original productions almost daily. The Dark is no exception – a melting pot of different Underground music characteristics brought together to offer a moody yet groovy beat, strikingly reminiscent of the bassline house tracks of yesteryear. Hybrid has a knack for utilizing vocal snippets to emphasize different sections in his tracks with ease, a signature technique that never fails to impress. B Side ‘The Morning’ offers more of the same with a cheeky cut up of Crystal Waters classic Gypsy Woman that is the perfect DJ tool!!
The work rate from this fast-rising producer has to be admired, with a hefty selection of tracks this summer that has earned him plays on 1Xtra, Radio1, Rinse, BBC Asian Network, and support from Eton Messy and djs such as Brackles (Rinse), Oneman (Rinse), Zinc (Rinse), Cameo (1xtra), Toddla T(Radio1)
